Check out more than half an hour of Crowfall’s current test version

I'm awesome but not in this.

Crowfall is transparent. Not in the sense that you can see right through it, but in the sense that the development process is open and allows players a thorough look behind the curtain. The game is currently in pre-alpha testing, but it’s not hidden behind an NDA even though it’s admittedly very early in the development cycle. How early? Well, you can see for yourself.

Seriously; you can see for yourself, there’s a whole lot of the game’s pre-alpha footage down below. The footage covers character creation before moving on to the game proper, putting it through the expected paces of messing with keybinds, unleashing combo attacks, and getting engaged in large-scale combat. It’s an early test build, but there’s also plenty to admire (the trees look quite good even on an untextured map). Check it out below.

TehAcidBaron NDA definitely has a purpose for privately funded games, not so much for crowdfunded.  I feel privately funded games are releasing info far too early in the development cycle (see: EQN) and then losing steam completely before launch.
Since crowdfunded games have promises to keep, its best if they stay transparent like Crowfall is doing.  It also provides confidence for additional crowd funding.

The only game I have ever Kickstarted and it definitely isn’t disappointing me.  Really happy with the progress they are making.

Rumm Thankfully this game is actual aiming and directional attacks, not soft targeting.  Not sure about telegraphs, being a PvP game, I think you should be paying more attention to player animations than telegraphs. 
If you can’t tell that you need to dodge something or block, I feel that the animation department has failed.  Thankfully this games animations seem to be shaping up quite nicely.

Cambruin It’s because they don’t have client-side movement prediction yet AFAIK, so there’s a delay between when you press a key and when you see your character move due to lag. They obviously plan to do this soon, but from a dev post on the forums it seems like they couldn’t get it working in time for the test.

Somehow movement feels ‘off’. Regardless, seems like a very fun game as far as pvp is concerned.
